During Gamescom Opening Night Live last week, Microsoft unveiled a new limited-edition Xbox Series X bundle with a stunning Halo Infinite design and matching controller as well as a digital copy of the game. Preorders for the $550 Halo Infinite Xbox Series X bundle went live soon afterward, with stock dropping (and quickly selling out) at the Microsoft Store, Target and Walmart

As of Monday, we’re still waiting on preorders to go live at a couple of stores, Amazon and Best Buy. Placeholder listings are live for both of these retailers, so stock could become available at any time. Keep an eye on these listings if you’re still hoping to preorder the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite limited edition. We haven’t seen a listing appear at GameStop, so it’s possible the retailer is waiting to sell the bundle at launch, but we’re keeping an eye out for a potential drop there as well.

Scalper pricing is already starting to spiral out of control, with listings on eBay exceeding $1,000 for the Halo Xbox Series X bundle. It’s unsurprising that resellers had a heyday with the limited-edition bundle, given how things have gone with next-gen console restocks over the past year, but it’s a disappointing reality all the same. As always, we do recommend holding out to buy the console bundle at list price if you can.

GameStop hasn’t yet opened preorders for the Xbox Series X Halo-edition console, and there’s not even a listing online yet. This could indicate the retailer is waiting until the console’s Nov. 25 release date to sell the bundle, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for a listing to appear just in case. 

In addition to the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite limited-edition console, Microsoft announced a Halo Infinite limited-edition Elite Series 2 controller. This gamepad has a different design from the one in the console bundle; instead, it’s green with a Master Chief-themed design and orange D-pad. It’s also out Nov. 25.

Seagate and Razer have teamed up with Microsoft to produce their own Halo-themed gear. Seagate’s Halo Infinite special-edition Xbox game drive has a similar Master Chief design in Halo green and will be available this October for $100 (2TB) or $160 (5TB). Meanwhile, Razer has a new headset option for Xbox players with the Halo Infinite-edition Kairo Pro, which matches the game drive’s design and supports Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 for low-latency gaming. It sells for $170, and you can preorder it now. Both products release this October.
